Facebook post by colleague Justin Hughes “In the wake of the tragedy in Boston, I feel hurt for those hurting. In the wake of tragedies that befall the world daily, I can say with the Psalmist of Scripture, “Why, O LORD, do you stand far away? Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble?” (Psalm 10:1, ESV). But what we see is not the end result. It will be made right, but we must “stand firm” (James 5:7-9).”
